Toast. You know when you're trying to make it and you just can't get it right? It's too light or too soft, then totally burnt. Are you the kind of person who tries to scrape off the black? Or do you smother it with jam to hide the taste? Do you throw it away, or do you just eat it? Up until now, I ate the burnt toast ! then I hit forty. It took Teri Hatcher a divorce, the experience of single motherhood, a parade of bad dates, a stalled career and a memorable fortieth birthday to realize that she didn't want to spend another decade preparing herself for the next disaster. Burnt Toast is the heartfelt, funny, poignant and inspiring account of Teri's jagged route to happiness. Teri reveals her life in unexpected ways, in the hopes of keeping other women from eating the burnt toast, and explains why you'll never get a second chance if you don't open yourself up to the possibility.
Born and raised in California, Teri Hatcher got into show business when she accompanied a friend to an audition for The Love Boat. After roles on MacGyver and Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, she fell out of the public eye only to return as Susan Mayer on the huge ABC hit Desperate Housewives. She won a Golden Globe and a SAG award for her performance, as well as widespread adoration, before the show's first season was even over. She lives in Los Angeles.
